Vegetarian Diet Less Healthy

Sunday, April 20th, 2014

A new study shows a vegetarian diet is less healthy than a well balanced diet. (More on “Humans Are Omnivores”)

Our study has shown that Austrian adults who consume a vegetarian diet are less healthy (in terms of cancer, allergies, and mental health disorders), have a lower quality of life, and also require more medical treatment. Therefore, a continued strong public health program for Austria is required in order to reduce the health risk due to nutritional factors. Moreover, our results emphasize the necessity of further studies in Austria, for a more in- depth analysis of the health effects of different dietary habits.
